It begins. But we all knew that'd happen eventually.
So there's a two-minute trailer for this cartoon called Gen Zed that
really should be renamed Tumblr: The Animated Series. The animation's
worse than the CD-I Zeldas, the "humor" is unbearably offensive for anyone
with two brain cells to rub together (and by that I mean it makes South Park look like the pinnacle of political correctness), the one cis white male is
represented as what Tumblr thinks cis white males are, but it's all okay
because FIRST OPENLY TRANS LEAD IN CARTOON HISTORY, and she's VOICED BY AN ACTUAL TRANS VA. SO PROGRESSIVE. (Note how nobody seems to remember Team Rocket's Meowth, because as far as anyone knows Maddie Blaustein didn't go on a jihad against the cishet shitlords.)
But the fun part? Even the SJWs and Tumblrinas are taking a lava dump all over it. I'm not sure why, because being a relatively sane person in comparison I thought for sure they'd be all over that shit, but apparently not. And honestly, I'm rooting for them, just this one time. This cartoon is that bad. It's just beyond belief that you can infer so much out of a two-minute trailer, and yet here we are.
But hey, if you don't believe me... some people hunted down choice tweets from the people involved in this, mostly the series' creator and the aforementioned trans voice actress WHO CAN DO NO WRONG BECAUSE SHE'S TRANS, and here are a few samples.
"Conservatives are frightened of trans people using the wrong bathrooms because it means less people potentially using their glory holes."
"It doesn't matter if you're overweight, you should love yourself. Because no one else will."
"#jaredfogle ate at a Chinese restaurant tonight. His fortune cookie read "Please stop touching me inappropriately."
"I'm starting a pool. What will #PresidentCarter die of first: cancer or old age."
"We're lucky Moses was Jewish. If he hadn't haggled with God we'd have way more than 10 commandments."
(This is a retweet, but still, just watch.) "My safe word is, "I'm HIV positive." Trust me, it works."
"Same guy who stabbed 6 people in today's Jerusalem gay pride parade also stabbed 4 people at same event in 2005. What a shit stabber."
"As Hillary Clinton's email scandal gets worse, Bernie Sanders begins worrying about his carrier pigeons."
"I walked past Bill Cosby's star on the walk of fame & felt woozy. But then I realized it's because all of Hollywood is covered in urine."
Wow. Just wow. I'm blown away. When this shit starts spreading on Tumblr, because you know it will, it will get so, so bad. Get the popcorn ready.
